TV Guide programme information, becoming lazy.

Hi,

I'm noticing some laziness creeping in on the TV guide when clicking on programme information on some channels.

The programme description has become very generic and provides just a synopsis/theme of the whole series, giving no indication of what's in the episode being shown.

Examples would be:

Murder she wrote - The adventures of Jessica Fletcher

Earth's natural wonders - A look at some of the most extreme places on the planet

Air crash investigation - Investigating air disasters

 

Could you not at least tell us the series and episode number, so we cab find out which story one is being shown.

Thanks.

Re: TV Guide programme information, becoming lazy.

if this is a v box the limited memory has ment that the EPG info has had to be limited to make memory for the extra channels not being offered.

The new box has more memory so can hold more information

Re: TV Guide programme information, becoming lazy.

Wouldn't that just affect the number of characters shown in the description?  I'm talking about the quality of the description entered.

Re: TV Guide programme information, becoming lazy.
